Train Locals to Help Conserve Tropical Forests

A considerable proportion of the remaining tropical forests on the planet are under some form of community-based ownership. These forests are exploited, and, in many cases, conserved and skillfully managed by tens of millions of indigenous and forest peoples who depend on them for their livelihoods. Yet, despite widespread concern about the fate of tropical forests and biodiversity, effective forest management by rural commmunities in the tropics has become increasingly constrained by legal, normative, and technical hurdles. 

One idea of what could be done about this. [NOTE: Photo shows Dayak villagers from Tae in West Kalimantan, Indonesia collecting fruit in their managed forest orchard (see Tembawang)].
